RIP Neil Armstrong.

I saw the news last night.  He was a hero to many, many people.  It feels as if a part of history has gone with his passing.  Of course it will never be forgotten, but while he was alive it felt so much more than just an amazing achievement.

Neil Armstrong's name will never be forgotten or his crew of Apollo 11. I wasn't born when on that July day in 1969, one of the greatest achievements in the history of the human race took place.

Godspeed Neil Armstrong.

Jerry Nelson, the puppeteer who taught innumerable children to count over the years as the voice of one of Sesame Street’s most popular characters, died Thursday in his Cape Cod home. He was 78.
 
Nelson succumbed after a long battle with emphysema, the L.A. Times reported.
 
Best known as the voice of Count von Count - the vampire with an unquenchable thirst for rattling off numbers - Nelson honed his skills under the tutelage of Bill Baird, the legendary puppeteer behind the marionettes in 1965’s “The Sound of Music.”

Kind of a side point, but both Neil Armstrong and Phyllis Diller are from an area of Ohio not far from where I live. I remember going to the Armstrong museum years ago in his hometown of Wapakoneta.

Max Bygraves, one of the household names of British entertainment for more than 50 years, has died at the age of 89.

The star, whose catch phrase was  ‘I wanna tell you a story...’, died at his daughter’s home in Australia after battling Alzheimer’s disease.

Bygraves, who enjoyed enormous success as a singer, comedian, film star and quiz show host, emigrated to Australia from Bournemouth  four years ago, hoping the warmer climate would help his wife Blossom overcome her health problems.

My parents always liked Max.  I did too, I thought he was funny and had a good voice.

RIP Max.

RIP, Michael Clarke Duncan.

http://movies.yahoo.com/news/actor-michael-clarke-duncan-dead-54-214440462.html

This is very sad. From the reports I've read, Duncan seemed to be a genuinely nice and caring guy who had a lot to offer. It's really sad that he's gone. Unfortunately, I think this provides yet another example of why it is so dangerous, and so deadly, to be more than 100 pounds overweight as he was. He was apparently trying to get healthier, and had recently become vegetarian. It's really sad that the changes he made came too late to help. A heart attack took him away too soon, at age 54. I hope his unfortunate passing serves as a wake-up call to all of those people who are severely overweight to make changes in their lives. This is what happens when you don't take care of yourself

I wish his family and friends peace as they process their tremendous loss. Michael Clarke Duncan seemed like one of the good ones.

On the other hand, Alfred Hitchcock lived to be 80.

Yeah, Duncan may have been overweight, but he'd pumped a lot of iron at some point in time too--he was huge!

Jim Fixx, fahion models and others who are thin also just drop dead of heart attacks. It's not just overweight people who die...
